According- ly, it is important to understand that a student may lose finan- cial aid by failing to maintain good academic standing each semester as prescribed in the Bloomsburg State College Bulletin under Section 5.05, Page 69. Financial aid available includes loans, part-time employ- ment, scholarships and grants. The Federal and Commonwealth governments fund most of the programs. Federal programs include College Work-Study, National Direct Student Loans, the Supplemental Educational Opportun- ity Grants, and the Basic Educational Opportunity Grants. Commonwealth programs include the Pennsylvania State Student Employment, the State Guaranty Loans (with Federal subsidy on interest payment for certain income levels), and the Pennsylvania State Grant Program. The State Guaranty Loans and the State Grants are admin- istered by the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA). Information may be obtained from counsellors in high schools or from PHEAA regional representatives. To be eligible for payment for summer school attendance, a student with a PHEAA grant must have earned 12 semester hours dur- ing the summer grading period; this requires a full six semester hour load in each of the two six-weeks terms of the grading per- iod. Limited financial assistance is available through the Blooms- burg State College Alumni Association Loan Program and the Bloomsburg State College Scholarships. Interest-free emergency student loans of $25 or less for a maximum of 30 days are available. Application is made at the Community Activities Office. Students who wish to take advantage of financial assistance must file a Financial Aid Form with the College through the College Scholarship Service, Box 176, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. High school counsellors can help students find informa- tion concerning this statement. Further information concerning financial aid opportunities may be obtained from the Director of Financial Aid at Blooms- burg State College. CATALOGUE PAGE REVISION DESCRIPTION Page 44 Student Housing General Rules Revised The College reserves the right to assign rooms and room- mates in residence halls. Students' housing preferences are con- sidered whenever possible. Housing and food services are provided only on a com- bined basis for students living in residence halls. Housing and food service contracts are binding until the end of the academic year and may not be transferred or assigned. Freshmen men and women are required to reside on cam- pus or commute from home unless extenuating circumstances justify other housing arrangements. Freshmen wishing to re- quest a waiver of the residency or commuting requirements must contact the Director of Housing for special permission. Although transfer students may indicate housing prefer- ences, on-campus housing is not guaranteed. Transfers who wish 7 Page 45 Residence Halls to live in the campus residence halls or pursue off-campus hous- ing opportunities should contact the Director of Housing upon acceptance. Upperclass resident students may live on campus as long as they satisfy the residence hall eligibility requirements. At pre- sent, any resident student who has earned 59 credit hours or less at the completion of any fall semester is eligible to partici- pate in the room lottery for the following academic year. For all practical purposes, this policy excludes students from living on campus during their senior year. This eligibility requirement is subject to revision to keep pace with ever-changing student and institutional needs. The residence halls are described in section 1.5, Buildings. Details about residence hall rules and regulations are print- ed in the Pilot, residence hall manuals, the Terms and Conditions of Occupancy, and other housing literature. Page 45 Off-Campus Housing Completely Revised All off-campus residences fall within the category of "inde- pendent" student housing. This designation means that the Col- lege does not approve or recommend residences off campus. Student off-campus housing is subject to inspection by officials of the town of Bloomsburg and residences with four or more students must also meet the standards of the Pennsylvania De- partment of Labor and Industry. The college Housing Office serves as a referral agency, col- lecting data on off-campus housing opportunities, preparing housing directories, and providing other useful information to student/faculty tenants and their landlords. Before any rental property is accepted for publication in the college off-campus housing directory, the owner must submit his/her premises to an annual inspection by the town building code inspector and must sign a statement pledging not to practice illegal discrimin- ation in the rental of the property. As the Housing Office does not assign students to off- campus residences, the student must rely on his/her own initia- tive in finding suitable off-campus accommodations. Any off- campus negotiations are the sole responsibility of the student and the landlord. However, should any difficulties arise in off- campus housing or with a landlord, the Director of Housing will gladly advise students on methods of resolving such problems. In some cases, the Director of Housing will mediate student- landlord disputes if such involvement is deemed appropriate, but only on an informal, nonlegal basis. Students planning to live off campus should have a clear understanding of their rights and responsibilities as tenants. To help students become more knowledgeable tenants, the Housing Office prepares information on topics of interest to off campus renters. Brochures and pamphlets are available on such subjects as security deposits, leases, discrimination, food stamps, nutri- tion, fire safety in the home, model rental contracts, home re- pairs and energy conservation. Street maps of the town of Bloomsburg, pre-occupancy checklists, office copies of the local housing code and Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Indus- try regulations, and articles on reading and understanding leases are also available to interested students. Upon request, the Di- rector of Housing will help student renters conduct pre and post-occupancy inventories of their apartments/rooms or serve as an impartial observer for alleged violations of the building code or other ordinances. Off-campus students are advised to obtain insurance pro- 9 Page 46 & 47 Student Organizations and Activities Revised tection for their belongings, since most landlords do not assume liability for loss of, or damage to, the personal property of their tenants. Students residing off campus bear a dual responsibility as citizens of the town of Bloomsburg and as members of the col- lege community. The college cannot provide sanctuary from the law nor can it be indifferent to its reputation in the community it serves. STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND ACTIVITIES Students are encouraged to take part in at least one extra- curricular activity per semester.

The Office of Veteran's Affairs is under the direction of The School of Extended Programs. Re- quired reports to the Veteran's Administration are sent from the Registrar's Office. There is a Career Development Course offered by the Edu- cation Services Department. The Center works closely with the department to assist those who are seeking an understanding of career choice process. 14 Page 54 Quest Page 59 Page 59 & 60 4.13 4.13 A program of outdoor pursuits in education has been de- veloped under the title QUEST. Its activities aim to encourage characteristics such as responsibility, leadership, self-confidence, trust, loyalty, initiative, self-discipline, and sensitivity through personal experiences in field trips, field study, and certain types of experiential education away from campus. Certain of the experiences may be designed to permit cooperating departments to offer academic credit to students who participate. Participa- tion is not confined to college students, but may include faculty and other individuals from a wide range of ages. The actual activities offered to accomplish the QUEST ob- jectives are: rock climbing, backpacking, canoeing, sky diving, hang gliding, rafting, bicycling, cross country skiing, along with exposures to new cultures within our society. Equipment for most of the activities is available at no cost to the participants. There is also a special five-day outdoor experience offered to all incoming freshmen students in conjunction with their summer orientation program which is called "Up Reach." Change title from International Students to International Edu- cation Students may participate in a variety of study abroad pro- grams during their enrollment at Bloomsburg State College. Each summer the college offers courses for credit in foreign coun- tries, such as France, England, Spain, Ireland, and the Soviet Union. As a member of the Pennsylvania Consortium for Inter- national Education, Bloomsburg also offers summer courses in Salzburg, Austria and Mexico, in cooperation with the other 13 state colleges and university. Through the Pennsylvania Consor- tium for International Education, the college also makes arrange- 15 merits for Junior Year Abroad programs or Semester Abroad programs. Information about these programs may be obtained in the Office of International Education. Page 59 & 60 4.13 Students in teacher education programs may be assigned to do their student teaching in one of the centers abroad with which Bloomsburg cooperates: in Quito, Ecuador; Recife, Brazil; or Liverpool, England. Further information about this program may be obtained in the Office of International Educa- tion. Page 74 & 75 General Education GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS Policy Revised (Revised and Effective) 9/15/76 The primary objective of General Education is to encour- age in students, irrespective of their vocational pursuits, the de- velopment of those understandings, attitudes, values, and social skills that will enable them to enjoy a fuller life and to play a more constructive role in society. The pattern of general education outlined above reflects a belief that a college must attempt to insure that the standards of an educated person in reading and writing have been attained, and should require the student to have experiences in the three recognized broad areas of knowledge: the humanities for their insights concerning intellectual and ethical values, the social sci- ences for enlightenment basic to understanding problems of so- ciety, and the sciences and mathematics for mature appreciation 16 of the contribution of these branches of knowledge in determin- ing the nature of an industrial-technical society. Prescription of general education courses has been set at a minimum in order to give each student, with the help of an ad- visor, the opportunity to survey his previous background and choose new intellectual experiences that provide opportunity for optimum growth. This policy places important responsibil- ity upon the student for discrimination in making decisions. General Education courses should be those which contri- bute to the broadening and rounding of our students' education in line with the stated philosophy of General Education. Each college department will re-list General Education courses subject to appropriate review. (General Education courses should not be those which were designed primarily for majors in a discipline or by methods and material courses.) I. Required Courses: English Composition 101 and 102 3-6 S.H. or English Composition 104 Physical Education (Activity courses only with 4 S.H. a minimal competency in swimming.) II. Special Electives This requirement is fulfilled by taking an indicated number of semester hours from each of the three groups, with at least two of the disciplines of each group represented. The 17 student's major discipline may not be included in the gen- eral education requirement. Students with double majors must adhere to this policy for only one of the disciplines.
